Behind Nashville Oktoberfest, this day beer festival is a fantastic way to get your drink on while listening to some great live music and enjoying the Nashville scenery. The festival offers multiple local, regional, and national breweries that are available to sample. The event is hosted at the Walk of Fame Park and is a great way to spend outdoors during the summer. This will be the event’s 18th year with it getting bigger and improving every year. 

We know that it can be a drag waiting for that week when Oktoberfest takes place, and we don’t want to see you down all year long waiting for it. This is just a few of the events that are on our radar that keep us moving forward while waiting. Nashville Oktoberfest is unlike any other celebration that takes place in Nashville as far as beer and tradition go but that doesn’t mean this great city doesn’t have much more to offer. Beer has a way of bringing people together and that is an experience found in and outside of the Nashville Oktoberfest grounds. Happy Drinking!
